In the fall of 1940, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill ordered a small team of scientists on a clandestine transatlantic mission to deliver his country's most valuable military secret, a revolutionary radar component, not to the U.S. government, but to a mysterious Wall Street tycoon, Alfred Lee Loomis. Using his connections, his money, and his brilliant scientific mind, Loomis and his team of scientists developed radar technology that would arguably play a more decisive role than any other weapon in the war. The Secret of Tuxedo Park tells a long-overlooked story of an individual who helped alter the course of history in World War II.

The American Experience series never disappoints. One of their sterling approaches is to take a relatively unknown aspect of history and drill down to tell the story behind the story. This dvd is no exception. Fascinating story about an complicated man who probably did more to help American (and Europe) win WWII than many more well-heralded heroes. How Loomis made and kept his fortune is fascinating as well--and the reason he was able to do so much for the scientific discoveries that turned the tide of war. Less than 60 minutes very well spent!
